Aster’s 550-bed hospital to come up at Kerala Capital

The Aster DM Healthcare is setting up its 7th hospital in Kerala at Thiruvananthapuram, the first phase of which having 350 beds will become operational in the financial year 2025-26. Once fully complete, the integrated healthcare facility will have 550 beds with several centres of excellence that cater to the aspirations of the patients in the southern part of Kerala and outside.

The hospital named Aster Capital is the 16th hospital of the group in India and will have all major super-specialty departments including cardiology, urology and nephrology, gastroenterology, orthopedics, neurology, organ transplant and woman and child wellness. Apart from offering OPD,IPD and ICU, the hospital will provide elite units like NICU, PICU and transplant ICU apart from day-care support and round-the-clock emergency and trauma response units. It will gradually have robotics and new generation systems too.

Providing facilities at par with global standards, Aster Capital will be positioned as a major medical value travel destination for patients from across the globe. Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare, said that Aster is fulfilling a long-cherished dream by coming to the State Capital of Kerala.

“There have been large number of patients who were visiting our Aster Medcity at Kochi — and we thought it is our duty to bring the services to their doorsteps down south. This will increase our footprint not only in Kerala but across India with over 4500 beds in the country. We hope that the Aster Capital Hospital will become a destination for the highest quality healthcare in the country attracting medical professionals and patients to the state from abroad providing facilities at par with global standards," said Dr Azad Moopen.

The hospital will have 5.76 lakh square feet area excluding 1 lakh sq ft for multi-level car parking and is expected to add 2000 more jobs, taking the total employment Aster provides in Kerala to 10,000 professionals including doctors and nurses. Aster is currently present in India in Kerala, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra and Telangana states.
